Children's Books to Enrich the Social Studies: For the Elementary Grades. Revised Edition.
Six hundred and thirty social studies books for elementary children, published between 1935 and 1964, are listed in this revised annotated bibliography intended for teachers and librarians. The aim of the book is to provide, as a supplement to the classroom texts, a list of fact and fiction illustrating different ways of life in other countries in an effort to promote cultural awareness, world understanding, and cooperation. Selection was based primarily upon even representation and recency of publication. The booklist is organized into five sections as follows: 1) Our World - dealing with geographical backgrounds, products and conservation; 2) Times Past - including prehistoric and ancient history, medieval times, early explorations, colonial America, and nineteenth century America; 3) People Today - containing twentieth-century United States, other parts of North America, the Arctic and Antarctic, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia; 4) The World's Work - treating business and industry, communication, and transportation; 5) Living Together - including at home, in our land, in the world, and celebrating holidays. Comprehensive, annotated content summaries give grade level designations and are numbered consecutively. Author and title indices serve as a cross reference to book contents. (Author/SJM)
